    Question Student suspended & even arrested over his... Pro-NRA t-shirt ? WTF??

    An eighth-grade student in West Virginia was reportedly arrested and suspended last week after getting into an argument with his teacher about a National Rifle Association T-shirt he wore to school.

    WOWK-TV reports that Jared Marcum faces charges of obstruction and disturbing the education process for refusing to change the shirt, which shows a rifle and the slogan, "protect your right."

    Jared told the station the he was punished by officials at Logan Middle School after arguing about the shirt with his teacher, who reportedly objected to the image of the gun on the shirt.

    "What they're doing is trying to take away my rights, my freedom of speech and my Second Amendment," Jared told the station.

    Jared's father, Allen Lardieri, told WOWK-TV he is upset his son was briefly jailed for something he believes was blown out of proportion.

    "I don't see how anybody would have an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a T-shirt, especially when policy doesn't forbid it," Lardieri told the station.

    A Logan County School District official refused a request for comment from WOWK-TV, but police in Logan confirmed Jared's arrest last Thursday.

    On the first day of Jared's suspension, some of his friends reportedly wore shirts displaying images of firearms and at least one was told by an educator to change their attire, according to the report.

    Benjamin White, an attorney handling Jared's case, told the station he is working on getting the charges dropped and plans to file a federal or civil lawsuit.

    It just proves even in my pro-gun state of West Virginia that the socialist agendas of the liberals are strong in our education system. The teachers in that rural part of WV should worry more about their teaching competency than what their students wear. They have the worst test scores in the state.

    I am a native West Virginian and it pains me to see my home state go from very pro-gun to this and the Manchin turn coat debacle.

    This is kinda blown out of proportion, in assuming on purpose. Schools have been banning this stuff for decades. We couldn't even wear shirts with beer logos on to our school without being told to cover them up. I don't agree with the policy at all but I'm sure the kid and family knew it would happen and did it on purpose.

    It doesn't matter why they did it. The kid's 1st amendment rights were violated.

    Sorry, but I have to call Bull$hit....

    Many of our public school's don't seem to be so vigilant about banning other kids from wearing; Che Guevara t-shirts or Pro-Choice t-shirts or Pro-Gay Rainbow t-shirts or Pro-Evolution" t-shirts, etc...etc...
    As a matter of fact, too many schools actually 'encourage' the kids "freedom of speech" whenever they wear those types of fascist shirts or wave those gay pride flags around!
    It's all about their "freedom of speech" then isn't it?

    Don't drink their LibTarded Kool Aid my friend....You'll get "Punch Drunk".

    That's right! It's only when the shirt displays a conservative message that the schools see something wrong with it.

    Like I said, I don't agree with it at all but it's been happening forever. And I probably shouldn't have used the term blown out of proportion. I think they did exactly the right thing bringing it to the media. The one thing schools are terrified of is lawsuits. I guarantee if they had let him wear that shirt and word got out to the parents, every liberal parent in the school would be calling the school complaining and threatening to sue over..something. The only way to stop it is to open your mouth and push back.

    Not a big deal, but I'm just curious how many decades you have personal experience to draw from on this topic? While there were some minor dress codes when I was in high school 40+ years ago, none of the restrictions were based on the politically correct memes today's are. There was everything from anti-(Vietnam)-war slogans calling out either Johnson or Nixon, lots of stuff about Reagan (from his time as CA Governor), "Make Love, Not War" slogans, there was T-shirt art that was clearly psychedelic drug oriented (lots of "magic" mushrooms), and I even had a T-shirt that had a picture of Ken Kesey in the foreground with the "Further" bus in the background, and with the caption, "Can You Pass The Owsley Test?" on it. I've still got a T-shirt from the Watkins Glen concert that wouldn't be worth 1/10th of that Kesey/Owsley shirt would be, but I wore the hell out of it and it's been gone for, well, decades now! LOL If you don't get that reference or recognize Kesey's or Owsley's names, chances are your decades don't go nearly as far back as mine do. And if you do go back that far and claim to remember much of it, you weren't really there! LOL Sorry, inside 60's/70's joke I guess. We did manage to have too much fun way too often.
